In order to get his hands on his father's inheritance and pay all his debts, Don Peppino must see his son Gianluca married and produce an heir within a year. Problem is everybody suspects the boy of playing for the other team.
Generally, when a comedy relies on ethnic flavour it means the story doesn't have enough going for it to do well on its own. This is the case with Kusturica's gypsy movie(s), this is the case with many Italian, French, Georgian (etc...) comedies. La moglie in bianco is that kind of a movie. Lino Banfi is in overdrive here with screaming and gesticulating. This is my first Michele Massimo Tarantini movie. If you saw Sergio Martino's work with Banfi and liked it, chances are you won't like MMT's movie as much. BUT. The main lady Pamela Prati is irresistible and all around gorgeous especially without her clothes, which she is most of the movie. Yes, La moglie IS funny, in theory, although it wants to secure the laughs by laughing in your ear and trying to choke you for good measure.
